to the journal, editorial report. i'm paul gigot, a divided country gave president obama a second chance on tuesday, handing him a narrower, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it. when you combine that with the president's brutally efficient, we now know turnout operation in core states like ohio, virginia and florida, popular vote pretty close in the end. in the end he got out the partisans in much the same numbers in 2008 and that's what won it for him. >> paul: so, kim, you're saying that's about 100 million dollars or more that the obama campaig
of the country did not vote for obama. he does not have a mandate on anything. it was not about prejudice. it was about principle in performance and his performance has been poured. the fed did not perform, whether he was black or white, he needed to leave. guest: thank you for your comment. i have to agree with her that, the president has not, he has not lived up to people wanted him to live up to. i agree there is no mandate. half of america did not support him. if anything, it shows we are a divided country. but, at and president obama, understood the fiscal crisis we were facing when he took office in 2008. he promised to pay down the deficit in half in his first term. not only did he not pay it down, he double that. what people do not -- either they do not remember or understand, his first two years in office, and he had a democrat senate and house. he could have done anything he wanted. he did not focus on that. instead, they crammed obamacare down our throats. he was reelected but the polling showed, going into this election, people were concerned about jobs in the economy. exit po
that defined them was growth, rapid economic growth and good feeling in the country about their presidency because of that. obama needs in my view, faster growth not 1%, 2%, get it up to 3, 4%. is he able to get that. does he understands that and try to shift policies in a way that aim for that goal because that would leave him much more popular four years from now. >> i think he has no clue, very simply. look, we have discussed many times on the show how obama wants to take federal spending from a historic 20% of grosse pointe woods up to around 24% because he needs it up there to do all the things that he promised in the campaign, which is to subsidize education, subsidize energy and so forth, he needs a higher level of spending, the idea is that if you have large levels of federal spending, keynesian response and stimulates the economy, and first term proves it doesn't work and if he does it again, there's no way he's going to get high growth. >> paul: and what political would you expect, to say, okay, this is a move to the middle. >> you can see how he responds to john boehner, said th
of the country. it is a victory that goes with president obama's victory. it was an affirmation of some good senate democratic candidates, but a rejection of republican extremism and obstruction. i want to emphasize the obstruction. the senate has always been a difficult place to make work. filibusters have always been in the atmosphere and a potential threat. and he is to be that the obstructionists were a few individuals. the leaders used to work to try to make the senate do the nation's business. these last four years, we had obstruction as a strategy of the republican party, led by senator mcconnell. if this election can be read as a the fsa -- a rejection of the polar ice senate. host: you are on the line with ira shapiro. caller: there were ability presidents i got this country out of trouble from the banks. we got into trouble trying to bring the banks back to their solvency. the greenback got us out of trouble. we have to get the little man out of the picture of the money and let america start controlling its money again and bring it back to the congress. that is my statement. thank
envisioned. with the country set to hit the so-called fiscal cliff at year's end president obama and congress are seemingly committed to repeating their rhetoric and, perhaps, their mistakes as they ostensibly work toward avoiding the calamity of going over that fiscal clef. house speaker this morning made it clear. he thinks this is the president's moment, and he called upon the preside to lead, and he called on the president to find middle ground between a bitterly divided republican house and democratically controlled senate now, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> this is his moment to engage the congress and work toward a solution that can pass both chambers. and earlier this week the president and i had a short conversation. it was cordial. i think we both understand that trying to find a way to avert the fiscal cliff is important for our country. lou: the speaker also noted that when he came to agreements with the president in the past that he has had no problem, as he put it, tting legislation passed in the house. president obama, and his first public appearance since
flying over the fiscal cliff? >> obama has several problems. one is he doesn't want to throw the country into a worse economy and he's already created. he will extend the tax cuts for another two years. exactly what he did two years ago. the cuts in spending from the sequestration -- those will take it back. that is good for the economy because it is the only spending restraint. gerri: some people don't think so. especially with iran right now in parts of the middle east up in flames. we slow down spending on defense, let me say that? >> first of all, it is a defense of the spending increase. everyone knows there is a great deal that can be saved. we had their pensions that were saved. there is a lot that can and will be saved out of the budget. that is not his agenda. athe end of the day in the last election, he promised that he won't raise your taxes if you make less than $250,000 per year his promise, it is for one year only. he does have his tax increase for the rich people and he is still $7 trillion short. that is his goal. gerri: wow. i don't know where that comes from, but that's
to me that the house is now the last line of defense for preserving freedom in this country. the people of south carolina clearly rejected president obama's policies i understand intend to fight on their behalf. in other words, it's the civil war. i'm standing up for south carolina. and obama may be interested in this thing called the union. i'm for sc sc. what an amazing, loyalty for your are state, as opposed to your country. didn't we get past that at one point? >> i don't think so. >> i'm standing up for south carolina, what does that mean? >> we went through this last summer. two summers ago, with the showdown over the fiscal -- over the debt ceiling. >> yeah. >> and at that point in time, the president tried to reach bargain. surer is right, john boehner would have cut a deal. but he couldn't, because at the end of the day, had he done so, his own house republicans would have risen up in mutiny. and he would have lost the speakership. whether mitch mcconnell and more adult members of the members the of the senator can put pressure on the house. if they can't change these fundament
before president obama and this administration and our country going into 2013? if not, what would you change? what would you add? >> when i was informed by lori murray about the outcome of the process by which the world affairs council went through and came up with those six issues, i thought you had it exactly right. i think those are the big issues and congratulations to you. i think you had them just right. i think there's an overarching issue on top of all of them in some sense enables all of them. and that is if you look at the national security challenges and foreign policy challenges we face, i say the number one challenge is getting our fiscal house in order. getting a handle on the debt. getting a handle on the deficit which are critical in order to get the economy growing again and people back to work. and think that is over -- it's certainly number one domestic challenge. my point is also the number one national security challenge. why? because a healthy economy and a healthy balance sheet undergirds everything we do internationally. funds our military, gives strength to di

that of course there was this historic frontier of electing the first non-white president as the country did four years ago. and even though 53% of the public voted for obama, he had 70% approval by the time of his inauguration. there was something that people felt good about america for having crossed this frontier. but the reelection was a sense, sort of the normalization of success for an african american president. and not just saying, "okay, yeah, we tried, but you saw how that went. you know, he wasn't really up to the job." that was, again, this great republican ad. you know, you tried, he tried, it's not working. let's, you know, let's go back to the way things are done. there was a fascinating comment by somebody on election eve who said with a straight face that, "this election, 'cause they're changing demographics, will be the last time there are four white males on the national ticket." and, you know, wait a minute, that's a sign of sort of the normalization of barack obama, like colin powell, as an american, as opposed to an african-american. >> well, he is as much white as he is bla

obama through out the election for his policies, saying he's dangerous for the country and dangerous for religious freedom itself. it's not at all clear how they're going to work together going forward. one of the other problems that the bishops have is that when they went to republicans who appeared to be more sympathetic and open to their situation, or their argument on the religious liberty question, ultimately did not do anything for them and dropped the issue. >> and there's some interesting, also i think, tensions within th laity, the catholic community that we saw come out in this election. i mean, we saw outside catholic players on both sides. the bishops were very active especially highlighting issues of religious freedom, abortion, marriage, traditional marriage. you also saw the nuns on the bus and people from the more progressive end in the catholic church, raising issues about economic justice and budget concerns and there were a lot of divisions and frankly i saw a lot of vitriol in the catholic laity, on the blogs and everything, between those two wings which those dif
